Full Description
Balbirnie House is a 1777 Georgian mansion, Grade A Listed of national and international importance. The house was the inspiration for Edinburgh’s New Town. This historic house was caringly restored and converted into a hotel in the late 1980’s, and since then the property has evolved into a totally unique and special destination, and especially so for weddings. Balbirnie is one of Scotland’s landmark hotels, with a uniquely established history under 3 decades of personal supervision and private ownership, playing host and providing a backdrop for many thousands of Scotland’s most special private and corporate events. Over the years Balbirnie has been the recipient of a quite extraordinary collection of industry awards, especially for weddings. In these contexts, 2019 was an extraordinary year. We were quite simply overjoyed to announce that at the Scottish Hotel of the Year Awards 2019 ceremony (the Hotel Industry Oscars equivalent), and set against the competitive backdrop of the many wonderful hotels and wedding venues across Scotland, Balbirnie once again received overall ‘Scottish Wedding Hotel of the Year’ - Rather incredibly, that is now 13 times in the last 15 years that Balbirnie has received Scotland’s top wedding award, in recognition of our dedication to our weddings. Our whole team are over the moon and thrilled that all our hard work to make each and every wedding so special has been so well recognised. As always, we continue to review across the span of what we do, our endeavours as always, as to remain ahead of industry curves. Furthermore, in October 2019 at the global Haute Grandeur hotel awards ceremony which took place in Malaysia, we became the first ever recipients of ‘2019 Best Destination Wedding Hotel – Global winner’, quite an incredible feat for Balbirnie House!
